[at038] Eterniday News (Vol. 1)
Arturas BumÅ¡teinas is a well regarded musician and visual artist from Vilnius, Lithuania. He is involved in many projects regarding contemporary music and experimental music. His compositions have been published by many labels as physical releases and online releases. BumÅ¡teinas also has a prolific career as visual artist, working on techniques ranging from video to drawings, sound or photography.
It is an honour to host this special release for Audiotalaia. Eterniday News (Vol. 1) is a compilation of four compositions centred on many aspects of soundscape composition, sampling and recombination. BumÅ¡teinas has prepared quite a long oeuvre that portraits different moments during touring around Europe. Second track Refusenik is a composition done using various soundscapes recorded on different churches around Europe. To this bed of sound BumÅ¡teinas has applied recordings of wind and stones that were added later on the composition.
The third track gathers different processed Stockhausen samples and various takes from rehearsals of Quartet Twentytwentyone an ensemble in which BumÅ¡teinas takes part.
Finally the whole release is a tour around different aspects of BumÅ¡teinas interest on contemporary composition. A tour that generates an imaginary landscape of acoustic moments that has an inherent feel of sound bitacora or the kind of recording you get back home after traveling.
